President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday reiterated his resolve to ensure that nobody is allowed to loot the treasury .Buhari renewed the pledge in Bauchi at a campaign rally organised to support Lawal Gumau , candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the Bauchi South Senatorial by – election , slated for August 11 .
“ What I will never exhibit is to allow selfish politicians loot public treasury and allow the masses to be cheated . All what we are doing is in the interest of the people and our dear country .
“ I pray God to expose sycophants that are still within our party, who are bent on trying to loot our resources , ” he said .
He therefore solicited the support of the people of the state in voting the APC candidate in the forthcoming senatorial by -election in the state .
National Chairman of the party , Comrade Adams Oshiomhole , had earlier described former members of the party that recently defected from the party as “ looters . ”
“ This is a clear indication that some of them ( defectors ) have been sharing the country ’ s resources for 16 years but failed to do that in the last three years .
“ Most of them are afraid of the anti -corruption crusade being waged by this administration , and are sure that most of them will find themselves behind bars .
“ There is no going back on sending those found wanting to jail , no matter how highly placed they are .
“ We are happy over such defection because we are fed up with the nefarious activities being perpetrated by them , ” the chairman said .
In his speech , Gov . Muhammed Abubakar told the gathering not to be deceived by the “ antics of some former leaders . ”
Abubakar blamed members of the National Assembly for the country’ s under – development, adding that he was happy that “ most of them are leaving our party. ”
He called on the electorate , especially those within Bauchi South Senatorial District , to vote for the candidate of the party during the forthcoming by -election .
In his remarks , State Chairman of the party, Uba Nana , said the current defection saga had not affected the party in the state .
He said that instead of members defecting to other parties , APC in the state had witnessed mass influx of people from other parties .
The chairman said that 25 other political parties in the state had formed an alliance with APC , to enable the party emerge victorious in the forthcoming by -election .
